If you’re a murderous criminal locked behind bars and one of your consumers of patent medicines and caged birds was none other than FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover, you must’ve made an impact. Now, in the case of Robert Franklin “The Birdman of Alcatraz” Stroud, this dastardly waste of human life could have found achievement in the field of ornithology.
In his selection for his last meal before being electrocuted in Sing Sing, did Dr. Arthur Warren Waite request some typhoid, pneumonia and diphtheria? Did he ask for an arsenic soufflé for dessert? While there are no records of whether Waite asked for such arrangements, it is clear that he used such substances to dispatch his mother-in-law and father-in-law. As a prosperous dentist before his murderous ways, Dr. Waite had become familiar with various bacteria and chemicals.
A dedicated woman can still hold out and show support for a corrupt cop…even in his death. Charles Becker received a sentence of the death penalty, won an appeal, and then the state rejected that appeal and Becker rode the lightning in Sing Sing.
Like a dramatic scene from a play, Chicago is regarded as the first city in the United States to recognize the practice and convict a man based on fingerprints as evidence. The night of the murder of Clarence B. Hiller would shake anyone to the core. A weird sound aroused Hiller and his wife from their slumber. In a struggle, Hiller and the anonymous figure tumbled down the staircase like two dogs wrestling.
First and foremost the information in this article I acquired from "A report on Domestic Violence and Rape by Law Enforcement agencies" in the state of Kansas.

Or if you choose to speak to a representative online you can go to www.the hotline.org. Whomever you speak to will be more than helpful in guiding you through the process of getting to a safe place such as a Domestic Violence Shelter or a family member is is willing to take you in and do the best they can to protect you.
On Big Moose Lake, in 1906, the water rocked the boat in a steady motion. Two young people who had become smitten with each other but had their own demons enjoyed each other’s company. Chester Gillette looked at the comely Grace Brown and smiled. It appears as if the two had fallen in the most profound and sincere kind of love. He carried with him a tennis racket. He withdrew the tennis racket and whacked her in the face in the head with it like an axeman chopping at a tree. Grace lost consciousness and fell overboard. Under the assumed name Carl Graham, Gillette journeyed back to the shore with supreme confidence.
Greed did not drive Albert T. Patrick to commit murder. Greed is about producing and creating more and possessing ambition to always want more...morally and legally. With the aid of Charles F. Jones, Patrick defrauded and murdered cotton, land, and railroad tycoon William Marsh Rice.
Colin Pitchfork was a burgeoning British serial killer, known as the first person convicted of murder based on

To claim one’s innocence after specific and indisputable evidence had surfaced took gall. For convicted murderer Adolph Louis Luetgert, he died in jail maintaining his guiltlessness. The “Mr. Lover,” who charmed concubines while still married and without his second wife’s approval, worked as the head of a sausage making factory.
An electric chair took on another sinister figure in New York, this time in the year 1895. The punishment stemmed from a murderer named Robert Buchanan. This doctor had claimed that obvious pinprick pupils would erase any indication that someone had been poisoned.
The Hippocratic Oath clearly states that a doctor must abide by the idea that he or she “will abstain from all intentional wrong-doing and harm.” J. Milton Bowers must have overlooked this section. The so-called “ladies’ man” murdered three of his four wives. After serving only four years in prison for his crimes, Dr. Bowers returned to his practice as if nothing ever happened.
